I've also got a piece in the book, examining WildStorm's all-too-brief run.
Cool! I especially liked Divided We Fall, the DS9 relaunch/TNG crossover.
Me, too. The writers really seemed to improve (over the course of four issues) on how to tell a Trek story in the comic medium. I genuinely wish they had been given more opportunities to develop their comic-writing muscles.

In fact, I'd love to see most of the contempary Treklit writers either try their hands at writing a Trek comic for the first time or be given further opportunities to return to comic-writing.

A Titan comic series by Christopher, a comic about 24th century Trek politics by KRAD, a DS9 relaunch ongoing by DRG3, Mack on an epic TNG miniseries event, Beyer handling a new Voyager series...etc.

Re: New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics

If I may...sorry for the hijack...

I have several Star Trek comics I'd be interested in knowing the value of (if any). If anyone could direct me to a decent resource for this or please email me at rich@classicpowellrod.com to discuss it further I'd really appreciate it. I am frequent visitor to some other forums but not this one. If I have committed an egregious breach of etiquette please forgive me and let me know. Thanks,
Rich

Re: New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics

"New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics" is scheduled to debut at Shore Leave this weekend. I just posted an interview with the book's editor, Joseph F. Berenato, at TrekMovie and the table of contents, in case you're interested.

http://trekmovie.com/2014/07/30/trek...hor-interview/

If you're going to Shore Leave, be sure and attend Joe's panel on Star Trek comics. Several regulars in this forum will be joining him.

Hi Ian. No, I won't be there. I wish I could.

But not me, though I will likely be listed on the program. Unfortunately, Shore Leave scheduled my practical self-defense workshop at the same time as the panel, so I will be unable to join Joe and the others for it.

For those of us far from Shore Leave, this is now available for ordering from Amazon. It's apparently POD, which explains why it was never available for preorder.

No kindle version yet, apparently -- unless I missed it.

No sign of it at Amazon.ca, so I've ordered from the US.

Re: New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics

Finished reading this morning. I enjoyed most of the essays. Unlike some other recent unauthorized Star Trek nonfiction titles, there seemed to be very little speculation presented as fact in this volume. I only arched an eyebrow a couple of times, and both times I realized I'd misconstrued what I was reading.

If I can get through an entire Trek nonfiction book without bumping up against something I know to be incorrect, I'm impressed. (That's not to say there are no misstatements in the book, just that they didn't misstate anything I knew to be otherwise.)

Good work to all the contributors!

I just added a bit on another thread, but realised it might also be of interest here:
